Legal Citation Guides
There is no single standard in Australia for legal referencing.
However, it is important that all citations made within one document are consistent in style.
The official citation style for the Faculty of Law at the University of Sydney is the Australian Guide to Legal Citation (3rd ed.) from the Melbourne University Law Review.
